Our final Authority
Choose this day whom you will serve...but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord
As Christians, the Bible is our final authority on all subjects. We're going to look to the Bible, the Word of God, to see what HE has to say about interracial marriage. Then we'll look at instances in the Bible that are used by pastors and religious leaders to "prove" that interracial marriage is okay.
You must ask yourself, am I seeking truth?
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths
Truth is not Racist
Facts are not Hate
What Does God Say
One: Kind After Kind
In the Creation account in Genesis, God established the law of kind after his kind ten times.
Most people don't stop to think about what this means, "according to their kinds". The word "kind" used throughout the Genesis account of creation is the Hebrew word "miym." It's Strong's #4327 and means to portion out; a sort, i.e. species.
The creation story can't be more clear. God creates. When He creates living things, plants and animals, He creates them after their own kind or species. Then He pronounces them good.
Many people don't have a problem with God creating different species of trees, flowers, dogs, cats. But what about people? That makes a lot of people uncomfortable. But right here in Genesis God set up the way that all life would propagate itself according to the law of kind after its kind.
God wanted to make sure that the Children of Israel understood the importance of kind after his kind, keeping blood lines pure. They couldn't even breed two different "kinds" of cattle together or sow their fields with two different "kinds" of seeds. God's injunction went so far as to prohibit the Israelites from wearing garments made from two "kinds" of cloth.
Following these laws would remind the Israelites that God does not accept mixing, in any form. He declared, "you shall keep my statutes" as He was forbidding the mixing of cattle, seeds in the field, and garments of more than one kind of cloth. You can read about it in Leviticus 19:19.
Yes, kind after kind is important to God. So let's see just how important.
After creating all living creatures, God created Adam and:
These words come straight from the mouth of God. The mate for Adam was to be "fit" for him. The King James calls her a "help meet."
After saying these words, does God then create Eve? No! God then brings all the animals to Adam to be named.
And guess what, Adam noticed that among all God's creation, there was not a helper fit for him. Why? Because God had not made a woman of Adam's "kind" yet.
Many theories are out there about the origin of the races. Some believe that creation was six literal days and that God created all the different races on the six day, including Adam, the first White man. Some believe that Adam was the first white man and that Cain's "curse" was being black. Hogwash. Some believe that Adam was the first white man and that after the flood Noah's three sons became the "fathers" of the White, black and yellow races. Hogwash. That's like believing in evolution. A White man can no sooner turn black any more than a black man can turn white. Still others believe that Noah's three sons were White but that Canaan's "curse" was being black. Again, hogwash! Let's use a little common sense here. History tells us that the descendants of Ham and Canaan were white.
Some people believe that when God confounded the languages at the Tower of Babel that He "created" the different races at this time. Hogwash. Then they must not believe the Bible because it absolutely says that "the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them" on the sixth day of creation. If God wasn't finished with creation and still needed to make the other races, why would the Bible record, "and on the seventh day God finished His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work, which he had done."
And still others believe that creation was six lengths of time during which God created all the other races. These races had plenty of time to procreate and multiply. Adam, the first of the White race, was the final creation of Genesis.
It really doesn't matter what you believe as long as you believe that God created everything, including the separate and distinct races after their kind, and that He proclaimed them good. God then brought His glorious creation before Adam for naming. And because a woman of Adam's kind had not yet been created, "for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him."
Now we can tell, you're really having heartburn over this. But consider
God is not the author of confusion
When God set up the law of propagation
He meant it
It's only our human minds that limit the power of God
God brought all living creatures before Adam to be named.
Strong's Concordance tells us that creature is # 5315. The Hebrew word is "nephesh. It means:
from 5314; prop. a breathing creature, i.e. animal of (abstr.) vitality; used very widely in a lit., accommodated or fig. sense (bodily or ment.):--any, appetite, beast, body, breath, creature, x dead (-ly), desire, x (dis-) contented, x fish, ghost, + greedy, he, heart (-y), (hath, x jeopardy of) life (x in jeopardy), lust, man, me, mind, mortally, one, own, person, pleasure, (her-, him-, my-, thy-) self, them (your)-selves, + slay, soul + tablet, they, thing, (x she) will, x would have it. (italics in the original)
5314 means: naphash; a prim. root; to breathe; pass., to be breathed upon, i.e. (fig.) refreshed (as if by a current of air):--(be) refresh selves (-ed). (italics in the original)
The word creature not only means animal but also means a breathing creature, man and person. Now you tell me, what part of the original Hebrew excludes any of the non-White races from being a part of the "living creatures" that Adam named? This does not make them animals. The definition specifically lists "man" and "person." So other than pre-conceived, politically correct, theology, what part of the original Hebrew excludes these other races from being a part of "living creatures?"
The answer is nothing. Not one thing. The only exclusion is tradition
But again, it really doesn't matter what you believe as long as you believe that God created everything, including the separate and distinct races after their kind, and that He proclaimed them good. God then brought His glorious creation before Adam for naming. And because a woman of Adam's kind had not yet been created, "for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him."
So God performed the first recorded operation, caused Adam to slumber, took one of his ribs, and created woman.
Adam recognized immediately that this woman was his kind. He had seen all the others. He knew the difference. When God brings the woman to him, Adam says, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." About time God, Adam says, that you brought me one of my own!
Don't miss the significance of the event. God took one of Adam's ribs to create his wife. Eve was made from the same flesh (bone of my bones, flesh of my flesh). They were the same race. Adam recognized her as such when he said that she was, "flesh of my flesh." And Adam is saying, "at last" you brought me someone "fit" to be my wife.
Only someone who was of Adam's kind, Adam's "species," would have been fit to be his wife. God performed the first marriage right there in the Garden of Eden. And He did it between people of the same race that He specifically created to be the perfect fit.
It doesn't get any better than that
Two: Genealogy of Adam's Family
If you follow the history of Adam down to Noah ("Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." Generations means heritage, lineage, descent, family history - Strong's #3205. Noah's racial lineage was intact.) and then from Noah to Abraham you find that these people followed the law of kind after kind. Adam did a good job in teaching them what God had taught him.
Abraham married Sarah, a near relative. Isaac was forbidden to marry into the Canaanites (Genesis 24) and a wife was selected for him from his kindred, Rebekah. Jacob was warned to take a wife from his own kindred (Genesis 28:1-2). The Israelite tribes descended from Jacob were expressly told not to marry outside of their race, their own kind of people. (Deuteronomy 7:3-6) Even within their own tribes when inheritance was at stake they had to marry a fellow tribe member (Numbers 36:6).
The Israelites were told that they were a special people and to stay separate from all the other people (Exodus 33:16; Leviticus 20:24-26; Numbers 23:9; Deuteronomy 32:8; 1 Kings 8:51-53; Acts 17:26). They were a people holy to the Lord their God, chosen to be His own possession (Deuteronomy 7:6; 14:2, 32:8, 9).
Not only were they to stay separate but they were supposed to have wiped out all the inhabitants of the land of Canaan before entering. This geographical separation from all other people would have naturally meant racial separation as well. The fact that the Israelites did not obey the command of God and destroy the people of Canaan was to become their downfall, both spiritually but racially as well.
Three: Israelites Specifically Told Not to Marry the Foreigners in Their Midst
We mentioned this in item number three but it should be emphasized. The children of Israel were to exterminate all the tribes in the land of Canaan before taking possession of their new territory. God specifically lists all these foreigners. They were the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. (Deuteronomy 7:1). God even says that these seven nations are greater and mightier than the Israelites! Deuteronomy 23:3 then added Ammonites and Moabites to the list of prohibited races.
The command wasn't, when you convert these heathen, then you can marry them and bring them into your midst. No! They could never, not ever, bring these foreigners into their midst!
If there had been Chinese in the surrounding area, you would see Chinese on the list. If there had been Nubians in the surrounding area, you would see Nubians on the list.
The Israelites were not to marry with those who were not their kind
Notice that God says these nations were greater and mightier than the Israelites. Israel had about two million people (600,000 fighting men plus the women, children and elderly), that means that there were a lot of heathen for the Israelites to destroy. On the flip side, that means that there were a lot of heathen to tempt the Israelites.
In verse three of Deuteronomy 7, God specifically tells the Israelites not to make marriages with these heathens. Now, there are those, people whose world view is not God's world view, who will tell you that the only reason why God told the Israelites not to marry the heathens is because they "would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods." (Verse 4) These same people with their own world view will tell you that as long as the Israelites converted these heathens, then it was okay to marry them.
Can you find that in the Word of God? We can't. Furthermore, then why was it sin in Nehemiah to have married these very same people? Nehemiah expanded and applied the prohibition to preclude all forbidden foreigners (Nehemiah 13:1-30).
The Prophet Hosea rebuked the House of Israel for going against the command of God and bearing strange children:
They have dealt treacherously against God: for they have begotten strange children. (Hosea 5:7)
Can God be any clearer? God never intended His people, created in His image, to mix. God calls this treachery against Him
God is our creator
We owe Him our obedience
Isaiah 5:20 says that people will call evil good and good evil. Don't reject God's word and accept what society calls good.
Four: Esau a Fornicator
In Hebrews 12:16 God calls Esau a fornicator. Was Esau guilty of sex outside of marriage? No! Esau had married wives that were not of his race (Genesis 26:34) and violated the law of kind after his kind.
Rebekah said to Isaac, "I am weary of my life because of the Hittite women (daughters of Heth). If Jacob marries one of the Hittite women such as these, one of the women of the land, what good will my life be to me?" (Genesis 27:46)
That's why Esau was a fornicator. His wives were legal in the eyes of man, but not in the eyes of God.
Five: Ezra and Nehemiah
It's rare that you'll find a pastor or religious leader who will show you these two books when talking about interracial marriage. Why? Because the injunction on racial mixing is just too clear and forceful.
When Israel returned from the seventy-year Babylonian captivity, the officials discovered that "The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands with their abominations." They go on to list the peoples that had been racially mixed with the Israelites. Ezra says that "They have taken some of their daughters to be wives for themselves and for their sons; so that the holy race has mixed itself with the peoples of the lands. And in this faithlessness (TRESPASS or SIN) the hand of the officials and chief men has been foremost." Ezra 9:1-2
Wow! Ezra calls God's people the holy race or seed. He says that the officials and chief men are the biggest problem in the mixing of this holy seed with the people of the land. The priests and Levites, the religious leaders who should have known better and taught the Israelites to obey the Law of God, were leading the way to apostasy!
Ezra was "ashamed" to pray about this to God! He was so devastated that he rent his garments, pulled out his hair and beard, and sat appalled. Read about it in Ezra 9 and 10. This wasn't a small act that was easily solved. Ezra admits that these people had broken God's commandment of Kind after His Kind and in doing so had sinned.
What was the remedy for this? After all, these people were their wives, their children. They lived with them, worshiped with them.
What did they do?
That's right. They knew they broke faith with God by marrying outside their race. So they sent the women and children away. The husbands, for the most part went with them.
Harsh? From today's perspective, probably so. From God's perspective? Absolutely not.
When they were making a list of the people who had returned, they had to appear before the leaders and prove their pure lineage. That's right. A genealogy was kept. And some of the priests "could not prove their fathers' houses or their descent, whether they belonged in Israel." (Ezra 2:59) Kinda makes you just a little uncomfortable, doesn't it. What's the big deal? Just let them be part of Israel if they want. But man's ways are not God's ways. Race is important to God and it should be to us.
Were these Priests excluded because they didn't believe in God or the faith of the Israelites?
They were excluded because they could not verify their racial pedigree
Obviously, the priests were fully assimilated into the faith of the returning captives. This just proves our point that the "theologians" are wrong. Race trumps faith
God will not be mocked. You either follow His law of kind after his kind or you're excluded. There is no middle ground with God
Nehemiah (Nehemiah 9, 10 and 13)also dealt with the problem of the returning Israelite captives from Babylon being interracially mixed. After being assembled with fasting and in sackcloth "The Israelites separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers."
The Israelites had to admit that they, and their fathers, had sinned when they took foreign wives. They entered into a covenant with God not to give their daughters to the people of the land or to take the daughters of the land for their sons.
One of Nehemiah's final reforms was instituted when he read from the book of Moses that no Ammonite or Moabite could ever enter the assembly of God. "When the people heard the law, they separated from Israel all those of foreign descent."
Nehemiah also discovered that the Israelites had married women of Ashdod, Ammon and Moab and "Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod, and they could not speak the language of Judah, but the language of each people."
The half-cast Israelites had no sense of Israelite heritage
What did Nehemiah do? He cursed them and beat them and pulled out their hair! He reminded them that foreign women made Solomon sin. One of the men who had interracially married Nehemiah actually chased from his presence!
That's passion for God's law!
Nehemiah ends his book by saying, "Thus I cleansed them from everything foreign." Can you imagine how heartbreaking this must have been for the rest of the people? But God is very clear in His Word. Kind after his Kind must be followed.
For I the Lord do not change
If it was a sin for Israel to marry foreign wives in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, then it's a sin to marry outside of our race today.
Six: Mixed Offspring
How much do you know about the Temple service of the Israelites? This was their church. Their worship center. This was the only place where they could get forgiveness from sin until the birth of Christ and His all atoning sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. Without the ability to enter the Temple, they were lost, literally.
God does not allow the offspring resulting from interracial marriages to enter the congregation, the assembly of Israel.
Bastard in English, man's interpretation, just means a child born out of wedlock, in other words, an illegitimate child. But in the Hebrew it means something entirely different:
The above text in Deuteronomy should read:
Oh my. We know what mongrel means! We have mongrel dogs running all over our country! They're mixed-breed. Ooh, don't like that, do we. But that's the meaning. It's the spurious mixed offspring born from parents of two different races, in this case one Israelite and one non-Israelite.
This offspring and their descendants are effectively barred from living and worshiping with the children of Israel
That's how important Kind after His Kind is to God
How important is it to you?
The word Mamzer (bastard) is only used twice in the Old Testament and interestingly, the translators used mongrel people, the correct translation, for the second instance in Zechariah 9.6.
Even back then there was a world view to protect when translating the Bible.
When the Israelites left Egypt a "mixed multitude" traveled with them (Exodus 12:28). These same "mixt" multitude went lusting for meat and caused the Israelites to whine and complain in Numbers 11:4. The "mixed" here is Strong's 6154 "ereb" - a mixture (or mongrel race): -- Arabia, mingled people, mixed (multitude), woof.
Some commentators will tell you that this "mixed" multitude was simply non-Israelites who traveled with God's people. But the original Hebrew in Strong's is clear. They were a mongrel race and most likely had some connection to the Israelites through intermarriage. Otherwise, why travel with them and suffer their deprivations in the wilderness? Why not return to Egypt if they longed for the comforts there so much.
The only other time the word is used in the Bible is in Nehemiah 13:3 when Nehemiah separated the "foreign" or mixed multitude from Israel. Obviously, "mixed" multitude is mixed race. No amount of twisting the Word of God can make it anything different.
This text directly contradicts the theologians who claim that God doesn't care about the race of an individual, only the religion. If that's the case, why does God exclude the offspring and the offspring's descendants for ten generations, which effectively means forever (see God's prohibition on the Ammonites and Moabites in Deut. 23:3)? The meaning is clear, God says don't interracially marry. And if you break my command, there are consequences, not just for the person who breaks the command, but for the offspring as well.
Seven: Seed to Molech
Stuck between statutes against marital infidelity and sodomy is a prohibition that seems out of place, at least at first glance:
Most pastors and religious leaders interpret this verse as a prohibition against idolatry. Makes sense, on the surface since Molech was a false god. But why is a statement against idolatry (specifically child sacrifice) included in a chapter devoted to sexual sins?
Maybe it hasn't been translated and interpreted correctly, in this politically correct time we're living in.
Let's take a look at the passage again. The words "the fire" are in italics. Guess what? This means that there are no corresponding words in the Hebrew manuscript! That's right. These two words were added by the translators and do not belong in this verse. The translators couldn't quite figure the text out and knew that people who worshiped Molech sometimes did offer children as burnt sacrifices. So in an attempt to make the passage make sense to them, they added the words, "the fire."
But child sacrifice is not what Leviticus 18:21 is talking about.
Leviticus 20:1-2 gives the judgment for passing seed to Molech: death by stoning. "The fire" was not added by the translators in this case so obviously there's more than one way to offer or sacrifice "seed" to Molech.
Seed in both verses is Strong's #2233 - the Hebrew word is "zera". This is not the Hebrew word for children which is "ben." Zera means fruit, plant, sowing time, posterity. Some define it as sperm or future progeny. The phrase "pass through" is Strong's #5674 abar and means a primitive root; to cross over...specifically to cover (in copulation). Prop, causeth to pass over, sc. semen.
So who was the sexual prohibition against? Certainly not against Molech since he was a false god and it would be pretty difficult to have sex with a god. Fact is, Molech was the national deity of the Ammonites and the Ammonites was one of the several lineages with whom the Israelites were forbidden to intermarry. So now we know why this text is in the middle of a chapter against sexual sin. God is telling the Children of Israel stay away from the Ammonites. Passing one's seed to Molech is a Hebrew idiom prohibiting forbidden lineage, and therefore, interracial relationships and marriage.
Isn't God grand! He used a term that the Children of Israel were sure to understand to get His point across. And now you understand as well.
Eight: Doctrine of Balaam
This is a warning, clear as can be, against idolatry and sexual sin.
What's the story of Balaam? You can read about it in Numbers chapters 22, 23, and 25. The Israelites, who numbered around 2,000,000, were spread out on the plains of Moab after wiping out the Amorites. And Moab was in "great dread" over this. So they got together with the elders of Midian and hatched a plan. They sent for Balaam and asked him to "curse" the Israelites. They tell him that they "know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed."
Obviously Balaam is a prophet of God gone astray for the love of money. Happened then, happens now. Money, and power, corrupt even the best of men.
Did Balaam really think that God would let him curse God's chosen people? What a fool.
When their plan fails, Balaam comes up with something that is worse, destroy the people of God by defiling their racial purity. In Numbers 31:15, 16 Moses tells us that it was the counsel of Balaam to act treacherously against God in the matter of Peor. As a direct result, 1000 of the chiefs of the people were hung in the sun, and a great plague killed an additional 24,000 of them.
What was the matter of Peor? Numbers 25:1 starts the story. While Israel dwelt in Shittim the people began to play the harlot with the daughters of Moab and Midian. Verse three tells us that Israel "yoked himself to Baal of Peor." God was quite angry. The plague wasn't stopped until Phinehas killed a Midianite woman and the man who boldly brought her into the camp of Israel.
Phinehas was greatly rewarded.
There are those who will say that there was no sin here except worshiping of idols. God's word is clear. If idolatry was the only sin, then Revelation would not have mentioned the additional sexual sin of interracial mixing, only the idolatry that occurred at Peor.
In 1 Corinthians 10 Paul lists this incident as one of many that the Israelites went through. He says that
The meaning is clear. Paul is telling New Testament Christians that the deaths due to interracial mixing at Peor are an example to them from their ancestors, along with others. And he's warning these New Testament Christians not to think that they won't make the same mistakes. Take heed, Paul warns, or you'll fall as well.
If only we would listen to the wisdom of Paul
One of the definitions of the word used in Revelations (fornication) is "indulge in unlawful lust." And that's exactly what the Israelites were doing at Peor. It was, and still is, against God's law to have sex with someone not just outside of marriage but outside of your race. God's law does not change just because times change.
NOTE: The sin was on several levels here. It was sin to have sex outside of marriage. It was sin to have sex with the Moabites. It was sin to worship false gods. But as you'll see in our next section, Midianites are racial cousins to the Israelites. Depending on the circumstances, marriage to them would not be sin. But that is not what was going on here. This was an orgy of promiscuous sex and idol worship that went right to the door of the temple. And the leaders of Moab and Midian led the Israelites into this great sin.
24,000 Israelites died as a direct result of this sin.
What an example for the other Israelites to remember
Nine: Consequences to All
People who engage in the sin of interracial marriage need to reflect upon the offspring they will parent. What race will these children identify with? We know of a child who asked her maternal grandmother when she would turn white like her. The child was three at the time. This same child's dark grandmother has a fit every time she goes outside without something to cover her because she get's "too dark." (No, the dark grandmother is not black.)
God warned Israel against the dangers of interracial mixing. He told them to keep the "holy seed" pure.
You cannot wash off the sin of interracial mixing. It's permanent. The above mentioned child put powder all over herself one day, in an attempt to look like her mother. This, of course, did not work. It will never work and this child will suffer for her mother's sin forever.
Ten: Interracial Marriage Mocks God
And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good
Animals instinctively know not to violate God's law of kind after his own kind. Unless forced by man, you won't see hybrids in nature.
Man, in his great wisdom, has decided that he knows more than God in His infinite wisdom. By marrying outside of your race, no matter what that race is, and then having children of mixed race, you destroy God's original design for your race. The offspring of interracial unions are no longer God's intended creation. God created each race to be unique and distinct and with their own purpose upon the earth. If any person of any race violates the basic law of kind after his own kind set up at creation, then God is mocked. Man is saying to his creator, I know better than you.
God absolutely created the races, separate and distinct
A word here about the flood of Noah. Most Christians are taught that the flood was universal and that only Noah and his three sons and their four wives were on the ark. Of course, all the rest of mankind everywhere was killed in the flood.
Since only eight white people survived the flood then all races came from these eight white people, and pretty quickly too.
Others Christians, fewer in number, believe that God made the races of man separate and distinct from each other. Since the Bible is a record of the generations of Adam (Genesis 5:1) only the race of Adam, through Noah, is mentioned as being on the ark. But in order to preserve all creation Noah naturally took pairs of these races on the ark and preserved them during the universal flood.
Both of these believe in a creation of seven literal days.
Then there are Christians, even fewer in number, who believe that God made the races of man separate and distinct from each other but also believe that God created the world in six lengths of time and rested on the seventh day. They don't believe that the flood was universal, but localized. They make a pretty compelling case, using science and scripture. Only Noah and his sons and their wives were on the ark. The other races were not because the flood was localized.
It doesn't really matter which one of these theories you believe. Because God knows the truth. And God's truth is that He created all things, including the different races of man. That's what you need to get past your religious conditioning
The Egyptians have known this all along.
Look at Egyptian monuments
Four distinct races in the one above
God lists specific punishments for transgressing His law
He also lists blessings for obedience
Curses for disobedience
As you read these think to yourself, WOW, modern America has not learned the lessons of ancient Israel
If all this has not convinced you that God created the races separate, unique and distinct from each other then check out these links
If we have not convinced you that God intended for those races to stay separate, unique and distinct
We're not finished yet
In defense of God's word
Refuting the pastors, Bible teachers, spiritual and religious leaders and other people of "faith" who teach and promote the unity of the races and interracial marriage
God will not be mocked!
